Behind the Boy Band: Q&A with Caroline Watson, One Direction's Stylist

Since forming on the UK X Factor five years ago, the members of One Direction have morphed from nervous kids in baggy jeans, unlaced gym boots and confused neckwear into self-assured, stylish rockstars with one Chelsea boot-clad foot firmly planted in the fashion world and thousands of people tracking every style move… » 3/02/15 3:15pm Monday 3:15pm

Max Mara Conjures Marilyn Monroe at the Beach

There's been a lot of soul-searching in recent years about what a fashion show even means in the internet era, and whether we even need them. This video from the ever reliable Elle España makes a compelling argument pro: there's something intangible about a designer's intent with her clothes that's missing when you… » 2/26/15 7:10pm 2/26/15 7:10pm

So Much Good Real-Life Style at the Brit Awards

I am constantly hammering this point because it's true: British fashion right now is, on the whole, so much more creative and interesting than American fashion. That's certainly true on the runway, but it's also true on the red carpet, even moreso with musicians, because on the whole British women aren't as bananas… » 2/25/15 10:04pm 2/25/15 10:04pm

Guess How Much it Costs Kim Kardashian to Wear Kim Kardashian's Face

Kim Kardashian catalogued her makeup routine for Into the Gloss. This list doesn't feature any products infused with oil from the skin of a pregnant elephant, but there is a $455 Guerlain moisturizer with "a texture that is rich yet generous, melting and impalpable."

Oscars Afterparties: Multiply the Glamour, Add Many More Pants

Last night's Oscars were a study in not preemptively falling asleep and/or not throwing crap at the TV screen for all the cheap-shot jokes, but at least we had the spectacle of gowns and tuxes, sparkles and luxe fabrics, to distract us from the absolute shitshow. Providing some small consolation for having spent… » 2/23/15 1:30pm 2/23/15 1:30pm

Here's Every Look From the 87th Annual Oscars Red Carpet

The Academy Awards have arrived, signaling the most frenzied awards night of the last 12 months, in which everyone on your television will positively explode with contact-excitement and the prospect of celebrity frisson.

Nothing At Fashion Week Will Top Discount Universe

New York Fashion Week is getting notoriously boring and corpo, so it's already starting at a loss, but now all these poor, beleaguered designers dropping $100k on staging runway shows have another thing to contend with: they have to live up to the promise of the first major show on the schedule. No, not talking about… » 2/13/15 6:00pm 2/13/15 6:00pm

Grammys Afterparty Style: Only a Tad More Absurd Than Usual

Last night's Grammys were, let's face it, a little humdrum on the fashion front. Aside from Charli XCX's Moschino tux, Madonna's matador look and Rihanna's gorgeous cotton candy pop of a Giambattista Valli—which many people seemed to hate, and were absolutely wrong—there wasn't a lot of experimentation going down.… » 2/09/15 3:00pm 2/09/15 3:00pm

APC Designer: I Can Call My Clothes 'N*gga'; I'm Friends With Kanye

The Timberland work boot has never truly gone out of style, whether with the physical laborers who actually utilize its waterproof outer, steel-or-soft toe, and ankle support in their day-to-day; or with the rappers and rap-lovers who popularized them as everyday streetwear more than 20 years ago. (And often, the… » 1/30/15 12:10pm 1/30/15 12:10pm

Spy Eye: An Interview With the Costume Designer for The Americans

Like most married couples, Elizabeth and Philip Jennings have their share of ups and downs, passion and apathy, parenting mishaps and frequent misunderstandings and breakups. Unlike most married couples however, The Jennings, the TV family at the center of The Americans, are also undercover Cold War-era Soviet spies… » 1/28/15 10:44pm 1/28/15 10:44pm

So Many Beauties (And So Many From OITNB!) at the SAG Awards

Everyone thinks the Oscars are the diamond-glitter-dust Awards Ceremony, but that's a bit of a misnomer: sure it's all fancy and frou-frou but the Screen Actor's Guild Awards is where you can see your favorite A-list movie AND television stars, frolicking together like it's nothing. Like Oscar winner Lupita Nyong'o… » 1/26/15 4:15pm 1/26/15 4:15pm
